Mike Bender
Board of Directors

In 1995, Mike Bender co-founded the company, then known as Image Products. Mike brings more than 20 years of experience in sales, marketing and product development to his role on the Board of Directors.

In 1999, Mike proposed the idea of a turnkey exercise incentive program to Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina. Today, that program is viewed as the industry standard and used by insurance companies in 20 states. In 2001, Mike decided to re-apply this strategy to the financial industry and what has evolved into Velocity Solutions was born.

Prior to starting this company, Mike directed the product development, in-house manufacturing, distribution, company store development, and catalog production for the logo programs of Piper Aircraft, Cessna Aircraft, Piedmont Airlines and numerous other smaller companies. Mike attended UNC Chapel Hill. A resident of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Mike is both an aviation and boating enthusiast, loves a good casino, and has no patience for golf.
